Hit-and-run investigation underway after body found by roadside
PJ police are investigating the discovery of the body of a young man beside the road in Seixal in the early hours of Sunday morning.
It is almost certain that death resulted from being hit by a vehicle.
What is not clear is whether the incident was accidental, or intentional.
The area (Cruz de Pau) has a number of night-spots.
For now, investigations are trying to establish what make of car hit the victim, and who owns it.
Say reports, it won’t be an easy task as there appear to be no witnesses.
The body was discovered shortly before 6.30am on Sunday. It had what has been described as an “exposed fracture”.
